After graduating in 1936, Wallach put aside his ambitions to act. Bowing to family pressure to find steady work as a teacher, he earned a master’s degree at New York’s City College. Then he failed the teacher examination. Wallach studied acting with Sanford Meisner and dance with Martha Graham on a scholarship until he was drafted into the U.S. Army months before Pearl Harbor was attacked, on his 26th birthday. After serving in a hospital unit, Wallach was discharged in 1945. While still in uniform, he was cast in his first Broadway play, “Skydrift.” It closed after five days.

Company officials also estimate they will need to have raised $3.5 million by October to be able to fully reinvent the company’s business model and ensure its long-term stability. “This is an urgent appeal. Cash flow is dangerously low,” said company CEO Alan Hineline, “We need to stop raising money to meet payroll and start raising money for the future.”.

Ninja Sex Party is a Los Angeles-based music-comedy duo consisting of vocalist Dan Avidan and keyboardist Brian Wecht. The group is out on the road in support of “Under the Covers Vol. 2” — which features the duo taking on tunes by Toto, Rush, Peter Gabriel and other acts — and performs Sept. 30 at the Masonic in San Francisco.
